Training

Engineering Dynamics is the leading Shaft Alignment Training Company in Africa. Our 4 day Competency Certificate Course is aligned with the new ANSI standard for Shaft Alignment. Our Laser Alignment Training Courses will teach you hands-on skills to take back to your company. We have structured our training material and practicals to allow everyone maximum time on the training rigs and with our Easy-Laser Range of Instruments.

As an individual you can join our public courses - see dates below - in Pretoria at our Laser Training Center. If you are a larger group, we can present the training onsite with our portable rigs - anywhere in Africa.

Shaft Alignment Training is done on a real world pump set and simulators. We simulate many of the real plant conditions with our simulators. A Competency Certificate using our Easy-Lasers is issued after repeatably aligning the equipment sucessfully to the set tolerances as found in industry. If you already have an Easy-Laser system or in the process of getting your own, then you are welcome on our courses.

We offer 2 Shaft Alignment Training options:

Instrument Training.
Instrument Orientation is always included with any Easy-Laser system sales. We will show you how to use the instrument (pressing the buttons) for 2-3 hours - free of charge at our Pretoria office. We can also travel to you at general rates for onsite training to cover our travel costs, time and accomodation. If you have new people or need a refresher course on any Easy-Laser models, we will gladly assist (and also show the latest models for an attractive trade-in....). No Competency Certificate is provided.

4-Day Shaft Alignment Competency Course
Our 4 day intensive alignment course are either presented onsite or at our Laser Training Center in Pretoria. With our portable training simulators and Easy-Laser systems, we can train groups of up to 6 people onsite anywhere in Africa.  Since we are using Easy-Laser systems, we prefer to work with existing users of Easy-Laser systems or people in the process of buying their own Easy-Lasers. After intensive practical tests are passed together with a written exam, we provide a competency certificate to attendees.
